The Venus Project is Looking for Transcribers and Proofreaders

If you have wondered in what way you can help The Venus Project but have felt you lack the skills to contribute to our other teams, we invite anyone with knowledge of English grammar, writing, and reading to join our Transcription Team.

The Transcription Team is dedicated to transcribing a collection of lectures given by Jacque Fresco since 1969. These lectures and transcripts are used as educational products, as seen in this newsletter. The lectures include interdisciplinary insights into the workings of human behavior, psychology and nervous system; diagnoses of social problems from a scientific and functional ethics point of view; perspectives and possibilities for the future of the human species; many hypotheses about building an alternative social system; the methodology of science and technology and how to think technically; problem solving and the processes of creativity and invention; and a very large variety of other topics. Information extracted from these transcripts also contributes to the development of our two higher-priority projects, the Center for Resource Management and a science fiction transmedia IP.

To join the team, please follow the instructions on this page.

Jacque Fresco - Conformity or Sanity

Jacque Fresco – Conformity or Sanity

In this lecture, Jacque Fresco explores the causes and consequences of conforming to an unsane culture. Fresco begins with investigating whether people can really be ‘aware’ of anything. Throughout most of this lecture, Fresco explores why members of a culture conform to expectations of friends, family, and institutions. He describes the difficulty of escaping the complications that arise when a person is pulled between their own needs and playing the games of culture. Fresco criticizes the errors and follies of conventional thinking that produce superstition and disappointment and warns against looking for ‘justice’ and relying on ‘hope’ to make life better. Fresco accounts for the widespread fear of change, the risks of personal experimentation, and the preference of most people to stay safe and comfortable. He suggests a way to resist cultural expectations while maintaining a sense of sanity.

Duration: 23 minutes.
